Dusky 252

Dusky is a boat company with a reputation for building sturdy, heavy duty boats for serious fishermen who want a rugged and dependable platform and don't need excessive bells and whistles unrelated to that activity. The 252 Open Fisherman model represents that need being fulfilled perfectly. A solidly constructed boat is vital if you fish offshore in marginal conditions and the three-piece construction process utilized in the 252 results in just such a boat. This is an open deck design ideally suited for full 360-degree fish-ability and the large flared bow opens up ample space to work comfortably around the forward deck. She features the Dusky Step-V designed hull which provides an easy ride in sloppy weather. Generous freeboard and a closed transom via the use of the Dusky Drive fiberglass outboard bracket keeps water out of the boat while providing an easy route into or out of the water for diving and swimming.

The center console feature unobstructed visibility for the helmsman and a console face large enough for all instrumentation and multifunction displays. Inside, the console is roomy enough for plenty of dry storage and large enough to install a marine head. Dusky utilizes every inch of space inside the console from the hull bottom up to provide extra headroom. The forward seating model provides plenty of additional dry storage space along with an anchor locker. Every Dusky boat is ordered factory direct and is fully customizable to suit your needs. Dealing with the buyer directly has been a hallmark of the brand for fifty years. For a no nonsense offshore fishing platform in this size class the 252 has a lot to offer.
